IndyCar Quotes:
Ryan Briscoe (No. 5)

“I can’t wait for Iowa. I feel like we have been doing a fantastic job and we’ll keep working hard to continue our strong performances. The No. 5 Arrow Electronics car was fast in Milwaukee but we just didn’t have the finish we wanted, so hopefully we’ll get a positive result to show for it this weekend.”
 
James Jakes (No. 7)
“I’m excited about being able to get back in the car again this weekend at Iowa. We were quick in Milwaukee but just had a little unfortunate luck. I think we can be very competitive this weekend and with a little bit of luck on our side, we can get a great result in the No. 7 MediaTech Oculus car.”
 
Indy Lights Quotes:
Scott Anderson (No. 77)

“With Iowa being our last oval race of the year, I really want to make it a good one. We came away with a lot of good info during our test there so if we can keep working in the right direction, we should be looking good. We’ve had good pace on all the ovals this year so I expect Iowa to be the same.”
 
Jack Harvey (No. 42)
“We will be looking to improve significantly on our speed from Milwaukee to put ourselves in a position to win at Iowa. I’m looking forward to the race and hoping to extend the championship lead with a win.”
 
Ethan Ringel (No. 71)
“I learned a lot at Milwaukee, especially being the first car to go out and qualify. I now truly understand the importance of starting in the front row on a small oval. For this next race in Iowa, I’m going to prioritize that and hope it leads to a podium finish. I know I have the pace to do it.”
